To welcome the New Year I have made new outfit building resolutions to take on in 2015. We all have those pieces sitting in our closets for months that we hesitate to include in our impulse throw-on looks. One of my resolutions is to consider an item from my pre existing closet that I have not worn in a while, to my daily outfit-building menu.
Here I am throwing on my vintage oversized denim jacket to an all black ensemble. I purchased this denim jacket from a vintage store in Georgia Atlanta and have not experimented with it before now. Here I am rocking it over a black turtleneck knit top from Ted baker and black leggings- an easy platform.
I embellish with my favorite black patent boots that I bought from the Burberry outlet, a good find Indeed! I decided to add in some accents of blue by sporting a velvet navy turban designed by one of my good friends and blogger Isamarij, along with winter trademark navy leather long gloves.
This Saturday November 8th I was blown away witnessing some of most brillaint light installation projections that took place at the New York Festival of Light (NYFOL). This event which has been taking place annually in cities like Bangkok and Berlin, finally made ints way to trendy DUMBO in Brooklyn, and brought over the masses across the bridge to witness the whimsical light displays. The lights were projected over the anchorage archway of the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn and took you on a visual journey. The installation were created by more than a dozen artists, who happen to be the leaders in this creative field of interactive, electric tech art. I will be adding videos of the light installation to my new Youtube Channel! #staytuned
